Book Review: John Bunyan
John Bunyan is a part of the Christian Encounters biography series published by Thomas Nelson Publishers. John Bunyan is a 142 page synopsis of the life of John Bunyan and the events that led to his writing of the classic Pilgrim’s Progress.
Belmonte weaves this wonderful story of this godly man through tales of civil war, persecution, and prison. In this short and easy to read tale one is privileged to gather a wonderful glimpse of the man who wrote one of the most endearing and lasting classics of all times.
As you read this book you are transported back to 17th century England. Belmonte makes the journey and transition easy as you join Bunyan and his family in their daily struggles. Belmonte makes it easy to experience the pain and sorrow of the Bunyan family. You can almost hear the soldiers and smell the powder as Belmonte tells the stories of war and revolution.
I give this little yet powerfully packed Biography of John Bunyan five stars. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wishes to know more about this wonderful man.
I have received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for this review.
